Apologies for the confusion! You may have noticed Rule of Three is looking a little different today. That’s because Tumblr is keeping me on my toes and throwing a few obstacles in my way. Pay no mind, I’ll keep posting and wrestling with Tumblr, and we’ll just chalk it up to the Mercury retrograde, okay? :)
Street style. It began with Bill Cunningham and his much loved On the Street column in the New York Times. Then came Scott Schuman, and a cult following on The Sartorialist. These days, there’s no shortage of street style bloggers and photographers, looking to capture candid moments of fashion on city streets in almost every major city on the planet. But it takes a special eye to deliver these photos in a way that makes us stop, take notice, and say, “Damn, that style is fierce.”
That unique perspective is definitely present in Street Manifesto, the new street style Tumblr blog from Toronto-based photographer (and hubby to my friend Amber), Mauricio Calero. Here is a selection of some of my favourite shots. If you’re a street style junkie, it’s definitely a site worth bookmarking.

Something about Beyoncé’s Tumblr pics make me feel like I’m just flipping through a friend’s latest album on Facebook. Adorable! Mind you, most of my friends don’t rock chinchilla, while riding their beat up bike on a deserted road in the middle of the night, with a camera following them. But let’s just chalk that up to artistic license and better storylines.

Beyoncé started a Tumblr! It appears to be a collection of photographs from her life and her tours. Some super candid. Some super luxe (is that gold leaf on her cherries??). And some showing off that gigantic diamond ring. Super beautiful all around. Explore more here and check out these three faves…
Part of my job is scouring the internet for the creative inspiration - things that will spark a concept or an idea for a new project, a new post or just a new way of thinking about an old problem. (Did I mention I ♥ my job?) These days there is no shortage of places to look. Using Pinterest, Twitter links, Facebook posts, news feeds, or any number of blogs, you can find hidden gems almost anywhere, but it’s a bonus when you come across a site that aggregates the overwhelming amount of internet “stuff”, as is the case with A Note on Design.
This blog from DISC Interiors (which appears to be an LA-based interior design company), posts a seemingly endless feed of beautiful images – mostly of places I want to live, but also of the occasional fabulous fashion item or inspiring quote. I could explore it for hours, but I have serious “work” to get to ;)

A recent Culture Club post gave a shout out to East Village favourite Peels and their chicken sandwich. I can’t vouch for the sammy, but we hit Peels for brunch on my last trip to NYC and it definitely makes my list of faves in the big apple. Mmmm, this picture is making me hungry and a little bit angry that I’m not in NYC. Yup, it’s a “hangry” afternoon.
Culture Club, from Club Monaco, is another Tumblr page that I scour on an almost-daily basis for interest and inspiration. Images are posted regularly, and organized by month, with bite-size write-ups. Here are a few things that have caught my eye recently. Check it out for yourself, it may become your new morning ritual too.
It’s Valentine’s Day week and despite being single, I’m still psyched. To me, Valentine’s Day has always been about celebrating love in general, more than love with a specific romantic partner. Sure, when I’ve been coupled up I’ve made an extra special effort to celebrate my partner, but Valentine’s Day is also about showing love for my family, friends and all the fabulous people in my life. Exhibit 1 - here is a picture of my 2012 Valentine…
So this week I’m embracing the spirit of St. Valentine wholeheartedly with a trio of love-themed posts, starting with today’s three pics to get you feeling the love.
